Edited by Jill Wright,
Do you want to see a psychologist but simply don't have the time in your busy schedule to sit in a waiting room?
You can now access expert psychological help when and where you need it through our secure online counselling service.
And just like face-to-face counselling, online counselling allows you to communicate and develop a therapeutic relationship with a psychologist, whilst maintaining privacy and confidentiality.
Online counselling is a convenient and flexible way to access expert counselling services and advice in real time. Moreover, online counselling has multiple benefits beyond those of face-to-face counselling.
It removes many of the normal barriers to attending regular therapy (i.e. travel time and costs, work commitments, location, availability of services, etc.) and subsequently allows you to attend more regularly and achieve better outcomes.
You can be more flexible in both the times and spaces you can access professional care.
You don't have to worry about any potential stigma or discomfort in attending a clinic setting or seeing someone you know, ensuring complete confidentiality.
You can feel more comfortable in a familiar environment, and rapport can be easily established. The online medium can also break down some of the anxiety or doubts you may experience about attending in person.
Online counselling allows you to boost your between-session success with resources and information sent to your email, reminder texts, and guidance on how to make the most of recommended applications and other technologies.
If you have been considering seeing a psychologist, but the barriers to attending face-to-face services are getting in the way, online counselling may be the solution for you.
